asked, with reference to the Schedule which had been issued as to persons liable to be flogged for certain special offences, Whether it was intended that every person committing any of those offences, and therefore liable to death, should be flogged, whether he were an officer or not?
§ COLONEL STANLEY
explained that the Paper referred to was a mere Memorandum which he had promised the hon. and learned Member for Taunton (Sir Henry James) he would lay upon the Table to show the offences referred 30 to in the Schedule which the Government intended to propose.
gave Notice that on the clause referred to by the right hon. and gallant Gentleman he would move such Amendments as would secure that where an offence liable to be punished by death was committed there should be no distinction made as regarded the infliction of flogging between an officer and a private soldier.
